Can you expand on that, i really have no idea what it takes to make it safe other then the obvious roll cage and other related safety equipment. Is the stock frame going to explode upon launch or what?If the chasis has been set up for racing then they are just a body on a race car.If its a stock Vega you are converting,it will get expensive to make it safe
Unibody.... I didnt know that....sucks....faster than 11.5 and the tech guys will shred your car. roll bar and all safety equipment.
you gat get nhra/ihra rule book to see requirements.
stock Vega had a 4 cylinder pos engine. uni body design,brakes are fair,front suspension fair,
good luck with the Vega,I kinda like them,sorta,,,
Sounds nice but id prefer to build it myself. Plus i only have so much money a month to throw at this.if u might consider buying one and save a bunch of time and money??? i have a friend that has one for sale.. i think he's asking $12k for it..but i'd need to ask to make sure, if your interested.. it IS race ready and i think its in the 10 sec bracket.. 383 stroker, full caged and inspected. he taged it in maryland and sometimes drives it on the street.. trans brake and line lock. can't think of tranny or rear it has... like i said its ready to go now.. it's in delaware..
Pinto? Anything you had to do to a Vega you would have to also do to a Pinto bean. It's not "easier to work with".One light car that is much easier to work with has been mentioned- the Pinto.
